Cadet Major.

is a very well made air rifle....it is heavy for its size but has a smooth cocking action and no rattles......has a leather seal washer and i rekon they run at 7ft/lbs......i rekon if you change the piston and use a neoprene parachute seal you would push it up to 11 ft/lbs...........that would be a good experiment

really solid well made gun

 Why oh why?

i understand your concirn.........im of the view that i dont like to turbo-charge these weapon...but use a better quality of spring...no stronger and make the sealing system more efficient and use dry lubricants.........none of these were available when this gun was made........i think it would fire smoother and more consistantly.........without hurting it...and the build quality and weight of this little gun would allow that..........

have you ever had a cadet major in your hands ?....tell me im wrong

As I said above, had three over the years and still do.

As well as 2 Cadets, 2 Airsporters (Mk 1/2), Mk1 Meteor, Mk2 Merlin, Breakdown Pattern, and, er, 11 pre-war under levers, all different.

OK, I admit it, I collect old Beezers.

are you taking pills for this collection?
